Change is necessary.

I don't know if you this but... It's Friday. 
I have to be at work in 10 minutes but I've decided to be a little late today. why?
Because its Friday! (and because I make my own schedule)


Can you believe that it's already the thirty first of January? I mean.. time really does fly. I've asked myself a bunch of times over the last month what I wanted to accomplish this year, what were are my goals. I usually make new years resolutions but for some reason this year I decided that I wasn't going to. I've spent the last two years working towards nothing and everything, that by the time the new year rolls around I'm completely cOnfUsEd. All I really know is that to change one must first accept that change is necessary. I look back on my life and see distinctive moments where something changed in me, drastically.I asked myself how that happened.. Sometimes it was forced upon me, sometimes circumstances such as heart break changed who I was and sometimes it was by choice. So, after reflecting and taking the time to talk to my cousin, friend and work out buddy in the sauna, I've decided to tackle one item at a time on my "things to change, improve & accomplish" list and that even though I might not be able to see results right away, its happening. Don't be overwhelmed, don't give up. Even if I'm feeling lonely, I am not alone. Lets be risk takers, be bold. If I'm not living my own life, whose going to live it for me? 

So on the top of my head, I made a short list of things I'd like to modify in my own life. 

1. Be loving -- whether the person deserves it or not. 
2. Be organized -- being sloppy only leads to tripping over your own things. 
3. Be healthy -- but don't forget to also be happy.
4. Be bold -- stop waiting for things to happen, make them happen.
5. Be responsible -- lets keep paying off your debt. 
6. Be consistent and determined -- on everything. not just school.
7. Be yourself -- this I'm good at already. 
8. Try something new, whats the worst that can happen? 





I used to be scared of pleated skirts cause I thought they'd make me bigger, I was wrong. & a hat-- that was a no-no. But I did it anyways. 


Love & Blessing.

Its been a long winter...

& I'm back.
(again)

Sometimes, I wish I could treat this blog like a diary. If I did than I'd have so much more to write about than just ordinary things.
I guess I could try, maybe just this once.

I moved back home two months ago. At the time I thought it might be the best idea for me. I felt like I was drowning in a sea of debt and despair while I was living away and I thought that maybe moving back home would ease the pressure and I COULD BREATHE AGAIN. Well, it did. Financially this is the best I've been in a really long time. I have a steady job and steady income. I am finishing school, even if it is online learning, and I'm doing pretty good. 

So whats the problem?
I miss "home". I guess it became my home for a year and half but the travelling back and forth is driving me crazy. I miss just being in the city I know I'm meant to be in. Crazy enough, my parents and I haven't decided which city we will be moving too, but we know its going to be near the church.
I didn't think I'd miss it. To be honest, I was relieved to be coming home. And now I'm itching to move back! If only we could just snap our fingers and things would fall into place. 

anyways, on a brighter note--
I've lost 4lbs!
Oh, yes, I went back to the gym. Before I moved back I lost 10 lbs.

Thanks to my sister-in-law always willing to suffer the chilly freezing weather to try and capture at least one moment where I look normal.
